for by the payroll tax. that's called -- a kind of single payer. but the republicans for years have been saying -- no we don't want it that way. we want private insurers. we want a profit motive the we want a market. and indeed if you look back, historically, richard mixston came up with a proposal that was very, very close to the affordable care act. democrats didn't like it. it wasn't close enough to social security and medicare. mitt romney, the reason the president is -- in massachusetts is because obama care was modeled exactly after romney care in massachusetts. including the individual man date, which mitt romney after he signed that into law and was asked where did the mandate come from. he said an idea from the heritage foundation. and i heard from it through newt gingrich. that's where -- that's where this comes, this comes from. so for republicans now to turn around and say, oh, we think this is just awful. we don't like any of this. well it its beyond ironic. it is sort of -- tragic and combic com comic. >> secretary sebelius -- >> the president made it clear. and our policy was put
on the tax policy. all of a sudden under the rules of the senate you need a supermajority to pass tax increases. if you're a pro choice woman especially in light of the fact that with a current make-up of the supreme court, you be concerned you're going to lose your right to access and safe abortion. so, again, the fact of the matter is, you know -- >> connect those dots for me, though. connect those dots. is the argument this? that if you muck with what the current filibuster rules are, you essentially begin to slide down a slippery slope, which will mean in the future republicans will muck with it in all kinds of radical ways? >> exactly. you're playing the long ball. if you're the democratic leadership looking out for the institution as a whole, you've got to be concerned about what may occur in the future. because after all, you know, you can't guarantee -- >> in the minority some day. >> yeah. you can't guarantee. >> here's the problem with the argument. right now, we seeing violations of all kinds of norms. the amount of filibusters has spiked. you have a crazy situation which r
to raise the minimum wage in the garden state and another in colorado that would increase taxes by $950 million in one year and restructure the way that state funds its public schools. we're back with james freeman and steve moore. let's go to colorado first. it's a very interesting state, trending left politically with a kind of new coalition of cultural liberals and hispanics. and women. leading to a democratic majority there. and they could take another big step to the left with this ballot initiative. explain. >> no question about it. you're exactly right. colorado is one of those states that has moved more to the left than just about any other state in the country. partially because of huge democratic liberal money that's gone into that state. what they've now put on the ballot is a ji gaigantic income tax increase to pay for more money for schools. big power play on the left to expand the size of the state government. the income tax, if raised would get rid of a traditional policy of a low flat tax. i would make the case one of the reasons colorado has been a high growth state is
for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're asking a different question, which is are we doing 100% income verification on everyone. >> and subsidy eligibility verification. >> yes. so part of the question in the application process is are you depending on your parents, on your parents tax plan so that is part of the questioning that goes on and if so we move them in that direction. more importantly, part of what you're asking is the income verification, whic
they weren't really raising taxes on the wealthy. we were just returning to clinton era levels. listen. >> all we're asking is that folks like me go back to the rates we paid under bill clinton. >> the same level they were during the clinton administration. >> it's bringing tax rates up to what it was for the wealthy in the clinton era. >> so is this a cut to food stamps or not? >> sure, it's a cut to food stamps. let's not play semantic games. if you were getting a certain amount of food stamps yesterday and today you get less, that's a cut. now, that said, the fact is that we are still spending more and more money on this program, and we can't just continue to expand it forever. >> but isn't it because people need it? look, there's this perception out there that -- and you've ever seen, not everybody on food stamps needs food stamps to survive. there's this perception that some of these people might be lazy. there's a perception that people are somehow gaming the system. but when we talk to food bank people who run food banks, they say that is not what we see coming through the front
. his budget costs seniors more on medicare and gives tax breaks to millionaires. well, what is that? we want medicare over millionair millionaires. >> seems we would be readjudicating the 2012 election altogether. i want to ask you, in the budget process, i know there was a call. it was reported that yourself and leader reid and a number of others, democratic leaders with the president, kind of all on the same page going into the budget process. and then this week, we read on wednesday that the president has said he is flexible about whether or not revenues can be on the table. and i know you've said revenues need to be on the table. harry reid has said revenues need to be on the table. are you confident that the president is going to, you know, stay with where the democratic caucus is on that issue? >> i think we'll stay together. if you have revenue on the table, you come to a bigger agreement to reduce the deficit, to grow the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say the
or medicaid reform even tax reform. those things are not going to happen for the reasons we just described. getting a number to fund through 2014 and avoiding kind of the harsh realities of sequestration would be good goals according to republicans and even some democrats. >> you know, ryan, i kind of think getting rid of sequestration, even if it means no revenue, might be a good deal. the assumption has always been republicans would be hurt so badly by defense cuts we can extract something. rand paul doesn't care about the defense cuts. why don't we jettison some of the crap, speaking about defense cuts. he wants more defense cuts. the idea this is somehow leveraged is maybe not that accurate. if you can unwind sequestration or put in a better bargain, if you will, and not get revenue, it still might be a good deal for democrats at this point. >> not a good bargain for the tea party. if you want to look for a sign of how much less power the tea party has now, look at what tom cole said, both sides won. he said more revenue, higher taxes, if they can do away with sequester, which is more
. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor was misleading. this week -- >> i -- >> let me ask the question. then you can answer. -- whether it was misleading. on megyn kelly's show this week you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance companies decides it's changing how it's going to structure its plan that is not the law doing it. that is the insurance company deciding for business reasons. >> but, doctor, the obama law demands that the insur
and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools rather than defending this law. greg abott immediately filed an appeal to today's ruling. joining me now, msnbc and planned parenthood in houston, texas, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. this must have been quiet a win down there today. >> yes, lawrence, thank you. this ruling is a victory for our parents. it's a ruling for women. it sends a clear signal across 50 states. it is unconstitutional for politicians to pass laws that take away the private personal health care decisions that women make in consultation with their physician. >> melanie, i just want to check one thing. the 30 mile rule of being knocked out, does that mean there won't be any facilities that will have to close as a result of any other provisions in this law? >> well, that remains to be seen. but what this does mean is that women across the state will have access to abortion care preserved for them. >> crystal, here is a george w. bush judge looking at what this lu legisla
was a perfect fit for the tea party. >> he interrupted the tax money flow. tide goes in, tide goes out. in the temple, when he saw the tax collectors dragging the money out of the poor people and overturn their table. and once he did that, his fate was sealed. >> i don't know what that means. >> and today's top trender, cheap talk. i can't use the "s" word. >> oh -- >> they have crappy insurance. we're going to be getting rid of junk insurance plans that haven't delivered anything for the american people. conservatives won't trash junk insurance. >> you can keep the plan that you have and like, but there's a but in our health care right now? there's a but in the system? >> that's a big but. >> the community is welcoming the destruction of what are called, you know, the skinny plans. >> you find something goes wrong so you pick an enemy and you demonize somebody else. in this case, it's the insurance companies. >> this just kills the market. >> we chose those policies and yet the president says you didn't choose well. >> what else would you expect from the republican party but a bunch o
us it wasn't a tax when it was. how many times did he tell us you could keep your insurance when you can't. this is an epidemic of dishonesty. and yet reporters won't report it, and poor ed schultz is saying that it's just so positive that nobody dares talk about it. >> bozell is wrong on all accounts. across the board he's wrong. hannity has now been reduced to defending junk insurance policies. and i wonder if he knows that most junk insurance policies only last about a year, when people actually figure out they have been hoodwinked into a policy that doesn't cover snot. that's why obama care is good. sean, i know, it's probably a little over your head. but i'll give it a shot again. a few weeks ago, i asked sean hannity to go face-to-face with me in a debate. instead of accepting what he has decided to do, this is his -- comes back with a challenge, he's playing clips of my show in his media clip or whatever, in his segment. look, i'm about the truth. and it would seem to me that if i'm wrong on these things, that handy would want to go face-to-face with me. i mean, you know, i'm
pass a budget that cuts things we don't need and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so that we can free up resources for the things that do create jobs and growth. building new roads, building new bridges and schools and airports. that creates jobs. >> meantime, republicans are doubling down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of less than a second for pages to load compared to eight seconds in the first few weeks. teams are working to improve the application process and increase system speed and efficiency. another round of fixes
, but it's going to be hard to find. >> well, there's a lot of money sitting offshore that's not taxed. that's for another discussion. i want you to come back. i enjoy visiting with you. we will do it again. mr. stockman, thank you very much. that's "the ed show." "politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts now. good evening, al. >> good evening, ed. >>> and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the truth about the gop effort to kill obama care. it's not really about the health care website. it's about the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democ
it in the fiscal cliff bill when they extended permanently $4 trillion of tax cuts for the upper part of the households in america. low income people weren't going to be impacted anyway, we never should have extended those taxes. you can't get them back now. it's permanent. and so there's no revenue except trivial loophole closing which will never happen because the lobbies dominate the process. and then finally, if i could just say, president obama stuck his toe in the water on entitlement reform, but it was the wrong toe. he said, you know, chain cpi. well, that means the person on minimum benefits is going to get hit if they had no other income. $9,000 a year, they're going to get hit. whereas a retired in florida living on a golf course getting $50,000 a year on social security and medicare is going to barely feel the nick. there should be means testing where you take the savings out of the top. so what we have is a total stalemate. we're going to do nothing on entitlements. they're going to try to raise -- >> so your forecast from your answer is you think we're going to be doing

their families. meanwhile, these very same guys fighting against jobs programs wanting to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. it is totally obscene. >> but, you know, senator, the food stamp cuts that will hit tomorrow will slash about $5 billion from the program. now, that's less than the $6.9 billion we spent in fighter jet contracts just this year alone. and get this. it's a fighter jet program that the pentagon doesn't even want. why don't they cut it from there? >> oh, well, al, i guess the answer has something to do with poor people and working people do not make large campaign contributions. our military industrial contractors do. billionaires do. the fact of the matter is that not only are we going to look at a major cut in food stamps tomorrow as you well know, the republican bill -- farm bill passed in the house calls for another $40 billion in cuts over the next ten years. so these guys at a time when many of our kids are facing real challenges getting the food they need, the nutrition they need, these guys are going to war against the kids. they want more and mor

the expiration of a payroll tax cut which knocked 2% off consumers monthly paychecks. is that an argument you make? the fact this goes back into the economy as does to heather's point the minimum wage? >> of course. that's also an argument. it's a secondary argument. the main argument we're just being mean-spirited and hurting a lot of people who are in desperate need of help. but the same thing, one of the reasons why we had to fight for stimulus and couldn't put forward programs we wanted to put forward to stimulate the economy, unemployment didn't go down as much as we hoped. of course programs have an effect on the economy. main thing for me, how can we talk in the 21st century being the richest country in the world, people are hurting. the minimum wage was mentioned, just mentioned. we're not raising minimum wage. we're making it harder for people to get a decent wage. you know, the republican party's mantra seems to be. i've got mine, now you go fend for yourself. >> julia, you're in a red state. w.h.o. williams at fox, not a channel known for its liberal views says it's bad politics fo

device tax on an industry that represents about two-and-a-half percent of our gross domestic product in massachusetts that will cost jobs here in massachusetts. one of the problems is what we did in massachusetts was tailored to our population. it took advantage of health care and a number of different things, one of them, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal
senate to bring that up. how in the world can that be. if you haven't paid your federal taxes, you said, if you want to get a federal contract you should be prohibited from doing that. barack obama the senator agreed with that, i'm agreeing with it now, yet we till can't get that kind of bill done, it's just another symptom of the two sides working together. i want to be that person. i'm a tea party guy but i want to work in a bipartisan way to strive forward but it's just not happening and it's very frustrating. >> at the same time on health care, do you think with all the problems with website, we're all acknowledging and ridiculinridin fact people tell me, i.t. people, if you don't know what is wrong with the code, you're really going to have to start from scratch. they don't know how there's an easy fix to this. at some point if the website works, is it possible republicans in general were wrong, that giving health care to however many million more people is bottom line a good thing? >> i'm not opposed to a website. i am concerned about a website that is not open and transparent, th
